Ok, in the interests of time I had been leaning towards only having a vote if locked in a dead heat. However, as we've had a lot of new book discussion, and it seems like the popular opinion is to have a separate nomination and voting process, LET"S VOTE!!!
So far our two top contenders are
1. THE ESSENTIAL CUISINES OF MEXICO, by Dianne Kennedy

2. Combo Southern Month featuring:
BON APPETIT Y'ALL:RECIPES AND STORIES FROM THREE GENERATIONS OF SOUTHERN COOKING, by Virginia Wells
(Amazon link http://tinyurl.com/mj22xm
SCREEN DOORS AND SWEET TEA:RECIPES AND TALES FROM A SOUTHERN COOK, by Martha Hall Foose
(Amazon link http://tinyurl.com/m4qzja
Place your votes here, by midnight Monday July 17th (PST). Please remember to vote in ALL CAPS, so I can scan through and post the winner Monday night. Again, your vote must be in ALL CAPS to be counted.
Thanks for participating, and I can't wait to see what this month brings!
